Topic "Can WinSCP2.2 dial up automatically?"

Author Message

When I connect to the internet (DSL) myself and then run WinSCP2.2, it works perfectly.

When, without Internet connection, I run WinSCP, it aborts with "gethostbyname: unknown error", rather than calling the Windows-xp dial-up routine as Internet browsers usually do.

Can I fool WinSCP into establishing an Internet connection automatically when necessary?
